Long Description:
Palm Beach County Glades Airport covers an area of 243 acres at an elevation of 16 feet above mean sea level. It has one runway designated 17/35.

The airport, commonly referred to as "Pahokee", does not have a control tower. Pilots landing at Pahokee use self-announce procedures to notify other aircraft of take-offs and landings. The airport can handle aircraft with a single-wheel weight of up to 20,000 pounds although local regulations restrict aircraft to 12,500 pounds and under. Because of the VOR/DME systems and relatively low traffic, this airport is one of five South Florida airports that is used for instrument training by student pilots.
